Jeff Gibson

Jeff “Gibbo” Gibson was born in the remote farming town of Manangatang. He was raised on a wheat and sheep farm and discovered his love of music at 17 when he began writing songs. His live performance career began at 23 around the same time as he started work as a shearer. He has balanced the two careers for the 25 years since. Don’t be fooled by his work-worn hands, this singer-songwriter shearer has a delicate musical touch. His 3rdand most recent album “Tin Dog Road” is a tapestry of cleverly woven lyrics.  From cool, rootsy rockin' soul songs to tear jerking ballads, with honest and humorous lyrics put so splendidly as only Gibbo can, “Tin Dog Road” won him BEST ALBUM and BEST SONG (“Good to Know”) at the 2016 Australian Roots Music Awards (ARMA). The songs penned for his 4thalbum due for release late 2019 will continue to challenge his listening and live audience with intelligent love songs alongside politically charged anthems. Live, he will have you crying one moment and in hysterics the next and you will understand why he has been claimed as “one of the best songwriters in the country and roots scene” (Multiple Golden Guitar winner, Luke O’Shea).
